Line Portrait Illustration

Came across a photo on Reddit and thought it would make an interesting illustration.

Donutman

Still working on my illustration/digital painting skills. I have a long long way to go still. This is an ode to the film "Sex Drive" that came out in the late 2000's. The main character works at a donut shop in the mall and has to wear this outfit while handing out coupons.

Playing around with some new illustration styles and decided to add a little animation while I was at it.

Furniture Sale

I've started selling some of my furniture yesterday. Decided there wasn't much of a reason to do boring write ups. Most of the furniture has sold already with most people commenting on my descriptions.

Animation

The newest version of Procreate for the iPad comes with some animation tools and I decided to try them out. When I had some downtime today I created this:

Anniversary Gift

I made this for my parent's 40th anniversary this week. Thought I'd share it here as well. This is the house they've been living in since 1996.

Victorian

When I was little I was convinced I wanted to be an architect. I used to spend hours playing around in home CAD programs. Even though I ultimately went a different path, I still find myself drawn to architecture. Maybe it's the geometry. My brain tends to run really organized and I like when things make geometric sense.

Anyway, here is an illustration I did based on some trips to San Francisco the past few months.

Octopus

Earlier this year I bought and iPad Pro and Apple Pencil and it's really helped me with drawing more. I think I always hated how with an eraser on real paper you never could quite perfectly erase mistakes. It's a lot easier to do digitally, obviously, so I find myself picking it up more to try random things then I did when I only had a notebook and pencils/pens.

Real Fruit for Real Families

Back when I was still a photojournalist in Atlanta I made friends with Megan Miller, a photographer based out of Los Angeles. Back in late June we were getting some coffee and she told me she wanted to get some more advertising photography for her portfolio. I'd been batting an idea around in my head for a brand I used to work on and pitched it to her.

Megan loved the idea and over the past two months in our free time we planned some shoots and made some fake ads. Besides the fun of pretending to be in ad school again, I enjoyed getting to work with a photographer who's work I really admire. You can see the results of our collaboration below.
